covid vaccinations - for everyone

Recommended Posts

If you are eligible(at least 6 months since your 2nd jab) you should arrange a visit. I've just checked the Covid app run by Dr Zoe and my area, Northumberland, has 7,110 active cases. That is up 1,756 from last week.

Friends of mine, 77yrs and 80yrs, were at Guidepost scouts hut on sunday morning with an appointment time for their booster. The queue was down the street and they got their jabs 1hr after their allotted time. It was a shambles. I'm not surprised when it's walk in no appointment required. What is the point of making an appointment?  

The 3 areas of Bedlington have a total of 72 active cases and Sleekburn has 18. The cases are increasing. I'm not surprised, very few people are wearing a face mask or using the supplied gel in shops.

The virus is going to run amok this winter.

It sounds like there should have been two queues, if that's possible. One queue for those with appointments and one for those who initially refused to have the jab + those youngins encouraged to have one without an appointment. Unfortunately when those organising the clinics have no idea how many may take up the offer it  will be difficult to know how the 'unvaccinated' will react. I'm guessing these pop-up vaccination centers rely on loads of volunteers to organise the queuing.

I wonder if that's just the unvaccinated young plus those who decline the vaccination that have caused the increase in cases. I just wonder what would be my attitude if the covid-19 pandemic had occurred in the late 1960's during my teenage years - would Bedlington teenagers have been cautious when lock down ended:innocent: 

The virus is going to run amok this winter.

And football could suffer :-

I'm sad to say that I have to agree with you. We've only been a week without restrictions and people are going mad. The damp, cold autumn weather is a perfect breeding ground for any virus - that's why we get colds and flu in autumn/winter and not so much in spring/summer. We're not out of the covid woods yet so stay safe everybody.

      All they want to do is cradle their newborn baby in their arms.
      But Bedlington parents Carly Walker and Ryan Murphy have been forced to watch from the sidelines as their daughter fights for her life.
      Little Ayda Faith Murphy was born prematurely on March 31, weighing just 4lbs, at Newcastle's Royal Victoria Infirmary.
      Rushed for her first operation straight after birth and another at just four days old, she's battling terrifying odds after being diagnosed with a series of incredibly rare birth defects.
      An almost unique variant of gastroschisis, a defect of the abdominal wall, has left her intestines pushing up into her chest - a condition doctors estimate is suffered by no more than 10 babies worldwide.
      Meanwhile, her heart appears to have flipped over and lies on the wrong side of her chest, while she's receiving oxygen from a machine due to her underdeveloped lungs.
